Applique, Hand Applique, Scrap Quilting

One down…99 to go…

The first block of Pat Sloan’s Splendid Sampler premiered today – and how appropriate – a ‘heart block.’  Each week two patterns for 6-1/2″ blocks using various techniques by multiple designers will be available for download.  Here is my first one.  I hope the rest are as easy and finish so quickly.  I chose to hand applique the heart – needle-turn is not as intimidating as many people fear.

Definitely not a traditional Valentine Heart – but I think it makes a dramatic statement.  I was attracted to this project because I can use some of my scrap stash – which is quickly taking over my storage area!  Normally I’m not a fan of scrap quilts – unless they are, what I call, coordinated scrappy.  Let’s see how I do with this project.

There is always time to quilt!
